Glasgow's Gilded Age 1864-1914: Glamour & Grit Conference
Dates:8.5.2015-8.5.2015

The conference will highlight those Glasgow designers who originally established the city's reputation at the time of the Aesthetic Movement and Mark Twain’s so called Gilded Age. Glasgow’s international reputation for design and manufacture sprang forth from the city's industries, as well as its educational institutions, and its influence spread across the globe through trade. This laid the foundation for Glasgow’s inimitable ‘style’.

We want to invite our guests on a unique sensory experience, considering both the glamour and the grit of industrial Glasgow. Our speakers will be discussing a wide range of topics, including; the interiors of Glasgow’s finest buildings, architectural ornament and stained glass within the city, and the movers and shakers of both the artistic and industrial spheres.

Prof. John Hume OBE, BSc ARCST, Hon FRIAS, FSA Scot; Chairman of the Royal Commission of Ancient and Historic Monuments, Patron of GCHT, and life-long supporter of Glasgow’s industrial and artistic heritage, will be speaking about the industries and the individuals who produced or commissioned art in Glasgow throughout the period.

Other speakers include Dr. David Mitchell MSC IHBC ProfICME FSA Scot, Director of Conservation and Trustee of the Scottish Ironwork Foundation, Dr. Robyne Erica Calvert, Mackintosh Research Fellow for the Glasgow School of Art and Max Donnelly, Curator of 19th-Century Furniture at the V&A Museum.

We believe that it is crucial to the promotion of Glasgow as a world city, and that through it we will be celebrating its vibrant artistic and industrial history, encouraging academic study of the period of this ‘gilded age’, and promoting Glasgow as a place for cultural and historic tourism.

Hans Christiansen - The retrospective
Dates:18.6.2015-20.9.2015

Retrospective on the complete works of the artist colony member of the first hour: With Hans Christiansen (1866-1945) is an as versatile as exemplary Jugendstil artists to rediscover, who found his vocation in Mathildenhöhe Darmstadt.

Hans Christiansen is one of the most important representatives of Jugendstil, especially with his drafts in the field of arts and crafts. In Paris where matured into an artist, he was appointed in 1899 by Grand Duke Ernst Ludwig in Darmstadt, where he was among the first seven members of the artists' colony. On the Mathildenhöhe he blossomed and excelled as a genuine work of art enthusiasts in painting, architecture and applied art as well as a designer of lights festivals. For the first time the full range of this versatile artist is presented: The retrospective presents his house on the Mathildenhöhe, room facilities, glass pane, jewellery, posters, paintings, drawings, textile art and ceramics in different spatial ensembles - including previously unknown like his fashion and poster designs from the 1920s.

The major retrospective, the first ever to Hans Christiansen, will be seen in four German institutions. The kick-off will make Mathildenhöhe as the first step, and then will follow the Bröhan Museum in Berlin, the Villa Stuck Museum in Munich and the Museumsberg in Flensburg, where the exhibition tour will end just before the 150th anniversary of the artist in his hometown.

II coupDefouet International Congress: Breaking the Art Nouveau Glass Ceiling
Dates:25.6.2015-28.6.2015

The Art Nouveau European Route brings together local governments and other institutions in the common quest for the protection, promotion and diffusion of Art Nouveau heritage. To fully explore and bring to light the value of Art Nouveau heritage, therefore, a Congress organised by the Art Nouveau European Route cannot limit its scope to the analyses and interpretation of the tangible heritage; it must go deeper into the reality of the communities that created it.

In this second edition of the coupDefouet International Congress, we propose to shed new light on an aspect that has been studied very little, if at all: the important contribution of women artists to the development of Art Nouveau. In a nutshell: women as artists, women as creators, women as promoters and protagonists of Art Nouveau. Coupled with this ambition, we also wish to revisit the widely studied and interpreted representation of the female aesthetic and ideal in Art Nouveau, with new contributions on the matter.

A further strand will focus on little-known Art Nouveau cities, in which we expect to discover creative centres of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries that have not until now been widely publicised. A similar section on research in progress to the first congress, one in which we welcome presentations from both seasoned and young researchers, will complete the thematic strands of the programme.

Le vitrail: comment prendre soin d'un patrimoine fragile?
Dates:8.7.2015-10.7.2015

Les vitraux sont un patrimoine fragile, mince paroi de verre et de plomb qui clôt les baies des nombreux édifices civils et religieux depuis le Haut Moyen Âge. Leur fragilité, qui les soumet, sans grande défense, aux intempéries, à la pollution, parfois au vandalisme, a de tout temps nécessité des interventions régulières d’entretien, de réparation, de restauration, souvent de remplacement. Au-delà des opérations spectaculaires de restauration où l’on applique les techniques les plus avancées de nettoyage ou de protection, les interventions plus modestes de simple entretien, de soins de base, méritent attention, car elles ont un rôle fondamental dans la préservation à long terme des verrières anciennes et modernes. Au temps où la crise économique touche de nombreux pays, il est opportun de réfléchir à une approche de conservation qui s’adapte, dans les meilleures conditions pour les œuvres, à de nouvelles contraintes financières.
